About Me


Jacques is an Artist/Sculptor from Damariscotta [living in Maine for the past 20 years], creating wood art pieces. Prior to becoming a full time Artist; he served as a Submariner in the Navy, drove a Zamboni in Hawaii, was a Scrimshander (Scrimshaw Artist) on Cape Cod and worked as a Forest Ranger in Northern New Jersey. Jacques now works in wood, striving to create an illusion of reality. Although nature as inspiration seems obvious, Jacques' vision begins with the way nature is repeated within the the "golden mean" or "divine proportions". His inspiration comes from pattern and form more than actuality itself. Jacques has demonstrated/ taught his techniques and lectured on design in France, England, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and 28 US states at such locations as Journees Mondiales du Tournage D'art Sur Bois Congres, Loughborough University, Anderson Ranch, Arrowmont and Haystack Mt. School. Jacques' work is in several public and private collections including the Detroit Institute of Art, the Contemporary Art Museum of Honolulu, Yale University Art Gallery, Carnegie Museum, Celestial Seasoning and Northwest Airlines Corporate collections.
